Jake Tyler, Managing Director
111 First Avenue
Dear Jake Tyler,
I am sure you are at a time crunch, so won’t waste any time beating about the bush. I am writing this letter to arrange a meeting with you to discuss a raise in my salary. This is the relevant time for a discussion on this matter as I was instrumental in aiding the company to obtain the prime time slot for our interview with the prime minister.
I was hired by your company for my proficiency in inter-personal skills and also my flair for public speaking. I believe that now a raise in my salary is reasonable. I have a number of accomplishments to my credit, including live coverage in the inhospitable region of Afghanistan. I got us the prime time slot for our interview and was also chosen as the promising journalist of the year by the Journalists’ Guild.
I want you to be aware that I view my stint at the company in a very optimistic manner. I want to continue rendering my services to this company and take it even further on the road to success. I believe my work ethics have been quite satisfactory as well so I would sincerely like you to consider my proposal.
